Chef Danetra was born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA. Her mother spent a lot of time away in the military. That time allowed Danetra time in the kitchen where she quickly realized her love for concocting delicious, flavorful creations. She knew early in life that she would pursue a career in the culinary industry. Through traveling with her grandparents and residing in foreign countries, she has learned the importance of experiencing the diversity in food!
Danetra came to Charleston, SC in 2008 for a three month internship at Magnolia’s Restaurant and soon thereafter fell in love with the charm, southern hospitality of the city, and of course, the culinary scene. After obtaining a degree in Culinary Arts from Johnson and Wales University (Charlotte, NC), Danetra moved to Charleston and joined Magnolia’s team as a full-time employee. She worked in virtually every area of the kitchen while attending College of Charleston to pursue a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management. Danetra was always unsure of how she would apply her education to her career until she stepped foot into the infamous capstone class of the HTMT program, where she learned how to write a business plan. This is when Swank was born! From this moment on Danetra decided to become a student of her own profession and channel her creativity towards everything and anything sweet.
In 2012, Danetra left Magnolia’s to start her career at the Ocean Course Clubhouse at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. There she found her home in the pastry department where she had the opportunity to play, create, and develop her unique and modern style of pastries.
With the versatility to create savory and sweet dishes Danetra incorporates the techniques she has learned from her experience with savory food and applies them to her desserts. She believes in utilizing the best ingredients in her desserts, ensuring her clients that any product they purchase from her will taste as good as they look!
